Get Your Wheels Ready for Some Fun
Thursday, March 27th, 2014
With the expected warm-up this weekend, everyone is feeling the itch to get outside and get active! A popular way to get outside is to ride something with wheels – so go get your bike or skateboard out of storage and get ready to have some fun!
Awesome Bike Trails
For people who love biking or boarding, Lexington Heights is a great place to live. Paved city trails run right along the entrances to our community and they connect to an excellent network of local and regional trails.
Or if you prefer mountain biking, we’re close to one of the best local places to go: Lebanon Hills. (Although be forewarned; their trails will be closed until about mid-May during the spring thaw.)
Here are some links to more information about the trails near us:
